Published 14 December 2018. By Kym Horner
MKB Law are delighted to announce Action Mental Health as our charity partner for 2019 & 2020.
Action Mental Health works with both adults and young people across Northern Ireland to raise awareness and provide support through dedicated recovery and resilience programmes.
Over 250,000 people in Northern Ireland have a mental health problem, that works out as 1 in 5 people. MKB Law operate in many areas of law where people are affected by a mental health issue, specifically Family and Employment Law.
By actively supporting Action Mental Health we aim to help eliminate any stigma still associated with mental health issues, and ensure both adults and children receive the support they require. Associate Director, Suzanne Keenan, comments: “Northern Ireland has a 20% higher incidence of mental ill-health than anywhere else in the UK. As a local firm we are determined to do our part in bringing this number down, and are pleased to be working with Action Mental Health in 2019 and 2020.”
MKB Law are honoured to be the first law firm to be supporting Action Mental Health through a charity partnership. Our fundraising will kick off with our staff Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 21st December – remember to check out our social media pages for updates!
